Playdead Studios announced today that the Mac version of their highly-celebrated platformer, Limbo, is now available on the Mac App Store, fulfilling a promise they had made that the game would ship “by the end of the year.” Which is cutting it close to say the least.
However, those who are looking to get the game via Steam will have to wait a little while longer. Limbo has been slightly delayed on that platform until January 13. The reason for the delay was not disclosed. Now if we could just get an iPad version.

Playdead has announced that Limbo has now sold over one million copies worldwide in 153 countries and nine languages across three platforms. The success of the game has allowed Playdead to buy itself back from early investors, and put the extra funds towards future and current projects in development. “With the success that Limbo has achieved, we felt this was the ideal time to fully regain our independence,” said CEO Dino Patti. “We are grateful to everyone who supported us over the past few years, and look forward to forging new partnerships that will both let us reach new heights as a studio and give our director, Arnt Jensen, room to grow creatively.”

The Korean Ratings Board has rated a PS3 version of 2010 indie love-in Limbo. Sony Computer Entertainment Korea is the one who mate the listing. Previously released on Xbox Live Arcade last summer, developer Playdead had said it was working on a new IP, but insisted that Limbo was an “exclusive for life” on XBLA. Then again, so was Braid and Castle Crashers and look what happened. Just saying.
We’ll email Playdead. Thanks, GSW.
